To answer this question, let’s examine the following…the simple fact is that robots will be taking over a large percentage of future jobs. Coding, or programming, is now an integral part of every new innovation or creation in the world.

The United States is believed to be one of the top countries in coding, but unfortunately, the U.S. lags far behind. However, they are trying to rectify this situation by making computer science education part of its school curriculum. This is vitally important since 80% of future careers are expected to utilize Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education skills.

Wondering who the competition is? When it comes to coding education, the real champions may surprise you. Here’s the top ten leaders of the world:

  1. China
  2. Russia
  3. Poland
  4. Switzerland
  5. Hungary
  6. Japan
  7. Taiwan
  8. France
  9. Czech Republic
  10. Italy 

It is clear that the U.S. must advance its efforts in order to compete with the computer science leaders in the global market.
